I M I G R A N T S ARE STRANGERS IN A STRANGE LAND

Jul15


 (MI)GRA(T)E    GaR        Gimel-Resh
GURR                 גר                        [GR]
ROOTS:  Latin migrare is to change one's place of living.  No T.  The theoretical Indo-European root only addresses the M element, as mei-1  is to change, go or move.  'M,' like an initial Mem, is often a prefix, so the G-R element is more important.  This entry will attempt to demonstrate how the AHD sinned by not loving the G-R, גר GeR, stranger.
  גר GaR is to dwell temporarily (Genesis 35:27). גר GaiR is a stranger (Genesis 23:4), who MIGRATED from elsewhere. The noun and verb forms are together in Exodus 12:48. MiGOOReeYM  means 'sojourn' in the Ben-Yehuda dictionary.
The stranger or MIGRANT  has often been expelled from his land.  גרש  GaRaSH is expel (Exodus 34:11).  גרושה GROOSHaH is a divorced woman (Numbers 30:10).  See  GRASS WIDOW (discarded mistress) at GRASS.   The landless, penniless  ג-ר-ש  G-R-SH person combines our  Gimel-Resh sub-root of expulsion with   Resh-Shin. 
רש  RahSH is a poor person  (I Samuel 18:23).
 
BRANCHES: A theological newcomer, stranger  or convert is a  גר  GaiR.   גר ה   Hagar's name means 'The Convert' (Genesis 16:1).  HaGar's conversión to Abrahamic monotheism, her rejection of Egyptian idolatry, would have great  historic repercussions --  even though Mohammad  would have to deal with paganism among the Ishmaelite tribes,  and even though non-Muslims would suffer from militant Muslim intolerance.  Hagar in Arabic is Hajra, hajara in Arabic means 'he fled, emigrated.'  The first running away, before Mohammad's hajj  (pilgrimage), was by HAGaR, and in the long run, Hagar's legacy will prove to be an important step forward.

The original Moses-son, גרשום  Gershom, the 'stranger in a strange land' is also named from this root (Exodus 2:22 – KJV).  The GR stranger term shifts to GL in the Irish town of Galway (stranger's town).   Nasalize MIGRATE and there are IMMIGRANTS and EMIGRANTS,  with some MIGRANT workers MIGRATING more often than geese.
One who 'sojourns in her house' is    מגרא בתה  MeeGaR(aT BaiTaH)  in Exodus 3:22.

Japanese magari-(nin) is a roomer or lodger who is magari (suru) renting a room.  
Gimel-Vav-Resh is the formal infinitive of dwelling. A dwelling or tent is ger in Mongolian. Dwelling is ghar in Hindi. Gari is a settlement or town in Hausa (Hamitic).  For GR circling around, see GYRE.  See 'GARAGE.'

GIAOUR, a non-Muslim, is from Turkish giaur or Persian gaurigabr  (both given etymons are non-Semitic languages.) גר GaiR is our 'stranger' word (Exodus 2:22).
Yosef  Shalom adds that in Modern Hebrew  גר ה   HaGeR means to emigrate; מהגר
MiHaGeR is an EMIGRANT.  E.D. Klein  calls this a coinage by Ben-Yehuda from the Arabic.  EDK was no ignoramus, just another meek stranger in a strange land.
